Brumbies winger Henry Speight showed remarkable resilience last week when he battled through breaking his jaw, to sing the club song and then drive himself to hospital.

Speight was forced off in the 35th minute of their game against the Waratahs with a broken jaw. Instead of taking the usual route of jumping in the nearest ambulance, Speight stayed to watch the rest of the game and then attempted to sing the franchise's song.

"I had too much pride to come off the field, I thought I had just lost a tooth," Speight told the Sydney Morning Herald. "I told the medical guys the least I can do is watch the rest of the game in my 50th, and the guys got the win.

"I tried to sing the song but there was nothing coming out. I just wanted to do a speech to thank the boys for how they finished the game, that was really gutsy. But they said it was about time I spilled some blood on the jersey, it took me 50 games."
